Custom Father and Son Scenic Tour

My job is so rewarding when I'm able to bring friends and family together. Robert called from Sweden to ask if were possible to arrange a tour to include his teenage son. Robert travels a lot with his work and wanted to make the most of his vacation time with his son and friends. We designed a tour for Robert, his son Nickolas, his friend Mikael, his son Erik and their friend Peter. Our backup guide Dana took this opportunity to include his son Jordan.

In the group photo Robert is enjoying today's technology calling Nickolas's mother to tell her what a great time they are having. The views are awesome at the 2,205 meter Baker Mountain communication site.


Robert's quote ….
"I want to take the opportunity to thank you all again for a great vacation.
We couldn't ask for anything better than we got from you, even riding in the rain is okay (we are use to that type of weather).
I did some promoting at our 24 hour enduro race this weekend so there might be some more Swedish riders coming your way. I could see a few riders writing down your homepage address.
Give my best regards to all the other guys/girls from me and I really hope that we meet again sometime, in Sweden or Canada.
Can you pass on this information to Dana and Jordan? I want them to know that we really appreciated what you all did for us.
Save my phone number so you can get hold of me if you ever come to Sweden. Maybe Jordan wants to spend some time over here with Nicklas, but remember that he will never be the same again after that (that's a risk Dana have to take)".
Regards, Robert Berg, Sweden

Rocky Mountain Scenic "A" Tour

David Baechtold and Pete Knowlton submitted their 2002 vacation highlights to the premier issue of Snap On Tech Magazine. It made the front cover plus an awesome five page color layout. Dave put his organization skills to work again and arranged another ride. We decided to challenge the Canadian Rocky Mountain Divide - in September, there is always a chance of snow!

Dave's Quote....

"Pete and I wanted to say thanks for the "VIP" treatment during our ride. We had a great time with you, again !! As it turns out, the highlight was the snow and most of our stories related to that. Jon and Doug also enjoyed the week, it was all good."

Our Suzuki DRZ's were awesome. Our bikes and bodies took quite a toll riding for five days in the rain and snow. Luckily, there was a hot tub at every place we stayed. We did enjoy some really nice periods of sunshine. They asked for technical riding and "Mother Nature" obliged.

Pete's final words - "I think the rain and snow made it more f
